I have a confession to make. I really had a hard time going for my happy thought after a very difficult month. I have been working a lot and it has taken a toll on my state of happiness. But then I realized I better own this feeling and quite truthfully: my happy thought for November is that it is finally behind us.
And that got me thinking. Is that really it? How sad. Poor November. It is the month that stands before Xmas, so sort of the one we must get through to get to the good stuff. Right? And this year has given us a very warm and rainy November which is sort of nice – but not. The thing is: it is supposed to be dry and white and a winter wonderland. But it is windy, rainy, dark. So it is almost like November could not win this year!
So, in all fairness to November, we had some beautiful sunny days. Me and Mr. Tee were able to get the last of the garden tucked down for winter, so the warm weather really worked this time since we were a bit late out of the gate. Also, the first Advent was last Sunday and I truly enjoyed going to the old country side church. The first Advent is the only Sunday the Hosanna hymn is sung. This time the country side church was hosting a family Mass and just seeing and listening to the little children really made it special.
And not to forget that Twilight: Breaking Dawn part 1 came out in November! I went to the movies during the daytime and had the isle almost totally to myself. I could not wait to see how this book is turned into movies. I am sure I did not notice half of the wonderful things I will appreciate once the DVD comes. But Charlie is always the best, The Dad. Funny wedding toast – really made my day.
So I have a lot to be thankful also in November. It is all just a matter of perspective. Thanks again to my blog to giving me the possibility to recognize to good and happy in my life!
